Hi Chris:

Have you availed the church of your critique? When I attended Reston
Bible Church in northern Virginia, a team of creationists came year
after year for eleven straight years to lead the faithful on a tour of
the Smithsonian where they would give YE explanations as they conducted
the tour. I wrote up a report similar to yours, pointing out their
prevarications and distortions, and handed it out to the pastor and to
the church member who coordinated the tour. That was the last year ICR
was invited to Reston Bible Church,

Subject: Report on Jason Lisle visit to Tucson

I posted a message here on the 15th pointing out that
Jason Lisle of Answers in Genesis will be in Tucson
talking about creationist astronomy. As far as I can
recall, I received no replies on this newsgroup.

I attended all three of his talks, took some notes and
wrote a report which I have just put online. You can
follow the last link at

or go directly to it at

for which I would appreciate any comments.

Three of my astronomy students attended one of the
talks as a "field trip" for extra credit to see
pseudo-science in action, rather than just hearing about
it. All of them were simply appalled by the falsehoods
and deception used to dupe the crowd.
